Photo Flash: Kelly McCreary & More In INTIMATE APPAREL At Bay Street Theater
Bay Street Theater is pleased to present INTIMATE APPAREL (July 4 - July 30) by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner and Tony nominee Lynn Nottage and directed by Bay Street Theater Artistic Director Scott Schwartz. Kelly McCreary, currently one of the stars of Grey's Anatomy on ABC, stars as Esther Mills.
Tickets are available by calling the Box Office at 631-725-9500 11 am- show time daily or online at www.baystreet.org. Previews sponsored by Peconic Landing. On Tuesday, July 4, there will be a "Pay What You Can" Performance with tickets available at the box office for in person purchase starting at 11 am.
In INTIMATE APPAREL, it's a delicate line between love and desire. Esther Mills is a skilled African American seamstress and has her own successful business in 1905 making lingerie for both society ladies and "ladies of the night." But she is lonely. As she searches for something more in her life, she unearths truths long hidden in the deepest recesses of her heart. All her relationships will be changed forever, from a poetic love with a Caribbean laborer working far away on the Panama Canal, to complicated friendships with different women in her life, to a growing bond with a Hasidic shopkeeper who shares his exquisite finds of fabrics and maybe something deeper.
In addition to Kelly McCreary (Grey's Anatomy, Passing Strange) as Esther, the cast also stars Portia (Ruined, McReele, Our Lady of 121st Street) as Mrs. Dickson, Blake DeLong (Othello, Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812) as Mr. Marks, Julia Motyka (Bay Street's Travesties, Richard III) as Mrs. Van Buren, Edward O'Blenis (Uncle Vanya, Tall Grass) as George, and Shayna Small (The Colored Museum) as Mayme.
The creative team includes Michael Holland (Composer), Jeff Cowie (Set Designer), Mike Billings (Lighting Designer), Emilio Sosa (Costume Designer), Jill B.C. Du Boff (Sound Designer), Meg Murphy (Hair/Makeup Designer), Andrew Diaz (Props Designer), Gwen Gilliam (Production Stage Manager) and Stephen Gabis (Dialect Coach). Casting by Stewart/Whitley.
